Microblading is a semi-permanent make-up through a manual process of inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin. We create the desired fullness and shape of your eyebrow and the effects can last up to 12 months after which the pigment fades leaving the skin and your natural brows exactly as they were.
How long do I need to allow for my appointment?
It is important to allow approximately an hour and a half. You will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire and an anaesthetic will be applied to the area.
Does it hurt?
There is a minimal amount of discomfort for some clients and none for others. A local anaesthetic is applied which numbs the area and every care is taken to ensure our clients are as comfortable as possible throughout their treatment.
What will it look like straight afterwards?
The area will be a little red and swollen and the makeup will look quite prominent for a few days. You will be given detailed aftercare advice post procedure and also a leaflet with all the information on.
Will it look natural?
We always err on the side of caution and aim for a very natural look. If any final adjustments are needed to your make up then they will be done on the second complimentary visit some 4/6 weeks later.
Can I wear make up afterwards?
Yes, but not on the area treated. You must wait for the treated area to heal which takes approximately 5 days.
My skin is very sensitive. Can I still have the treatment?
It is essential to have a patch test 48 hours prior to any procedure. If you have very sensitive skin you must have a patch test 4/6 weeks before and you may also have to get a doctors note.
What do I do if it fades?
You can have colour refreshers whenever required. This can be anything from 6 months after the first procedure to 3 years. Lifestyle will influence how well the make up lasts. Use of Sunbeds, smoking, swimming etc can cause fading.
